With all that's going on in our economy, it can be hard for families to afford feeding their pet. The Humane Society of Huron Valley has a program that helps to supplement one's supply of pet food called Bountiful Bowls. The Humane Society relies on donations of quality pet food for this program. The winter holidays are often a time that people like to organize food drives. Have you ever considered a pet food drive? Look at their wish list for more information!
